Introducing the Modern Data Center
The Full Story
The modern business requires a Modern Data Center built on flash, cloud, scale-out, and software defined.
Watch Jeremy Burton explain the Modern Data Center.
The volume of data and number of connected devices and services is growing at an unprecedented rate. In order to capture digital revenue streams, develop smarter products and deliver the improved experiences that customers expect, companies and IT departments need to undergo significant transformation.
White Paper: The Rise of the Modern Data Center
Along with running large enterprise apps, companies need to continuously develop the mobile applications and embedded software that will transform their products and services. All of this, while simultaneously lowering the cost and improving the performance of their older applications. The only way to achieve both of these goals – to innovate and optimize – is to transform the technology we use to deliver IT services.
The first step is to Modernize the infrastructure components on which IT is built. The best approach for this is to leverage converged infrastructure platforms.
The next critical step for becoming a Modern Data Center is to Automate the delivery of IT services to lines-of-business and application owners through software and cloud integration.
A truly hybrid experience requires a Transformation of the technology as well as the IT operations, which means the people and processes that deliver value to the business must adapt to the model as well.
Flash storage is a pillar of the Modern Data Center, giving you consistent, predictable, low latency performance across your infrastructure, while dramatically reducing cost and complexity.
Cloud-enabling your infrastructure provides you the automation and agility you need to broker seamless IT services. Deploying and managing data and applications can begin right away, liberating your IT, and you, to tackle business needs.
Scale-out technology is designed to give you low cost of entry, and a single scale-out system that is elastic, allowing you to manage massive capacities, and changes, with very few resources.
The software defined model allows you to automate the configuration and deployment of IT services, delivering greater business agility and a more flexible, programmable approach to managing data services.
Converged infrastructure reduces the time and the cost of deploying, configuring and managing hardware and software components separately and increases time to value for IT investments. It’s essential that converged systems be built on technologies that are third-platform ready: like flash, cloud-enabled, scale-out, and software-defined systems.
Our converged infrastructure solutions are easier, more cost-effective, and provide a much, much more successful way to run your IT. You get to deploy fully optimized, ready-to-go platforms that let you run your core business applications, services, and capabilities.
